Wearing a mouth mask for the prevention of the coronavirus makes sense, but an unexpected additional skin condition is Maskne. In this case, pimples are caused by wearing a mouth mask for a long time.
If you wear a mouth mask regularly, chances are your skin will react to it. Acne often appears on the skin around the mouth, nose and chin. The mouth mask rubs against the skin, which can become irritated.
As a result, wearing a mouth mask can cause impurities and acne.This gave rise to a new form of acne called maskne, which is a combination of the English word “mask” and “acne”.
The treatment of maskne consists of the expert removal of blackheads and inflammation. Getting the sebum production under control and thinning the upper skin layer. Acne treatment is often combined with a chemical peel. Home products with exfoliating properties are also recommended, to speed up the treatment process and prevent the skin from clogging up again.
